1. COMMUNICATION ARTS 2014 PHOTO ANNUAL!

    I am grateful to be included in Communication Arts’ Photo Annual 2014. This image for Arnold Worldwide and Jack Daniel’s was one of only 49 projects - taken all over the world and by an amazing collection of photographers - to be chosen for the Advertising category. What an honor. The image was taken one morning last September on a plantation outside of Charleston, SC. Thanks again to my great team for all of the help and hard work.

  4. TRIBEZA - HUNTING DOWN DINNER

    Enjoyed working with Georgia Pellegrini and Jesse Griffiths for this feature on hunter chefs for Tribeza magazine, by Elizabeth Winslow.  I photographed Georgia one morning last month, and caught up with Jesse in his backyard as he cleaned a fish for dinner.

    Jesse and I have begun preliminary work for a follow up book to James Beard nominated Afield.

  5. GARDEN & GUN MAGAZINE - MEZCAL’S OLD SOUL

    There are worse things in the world than spending four days eating great food and drinking mezcal in and around Oaxaca, Mexico. For this assignment I had the pleasure of working with writer Logan Ward, and friend and collaborator Blair Richardson who produced the story.    

    I’m grateful to G&G for picking this up - especially to Art Director Marshall McKinney who advocated for the piece. A big thanks also to Marco Ochoa from Mescaloteca for his generosity and an introduction to the mezcaleros.

  7. SMOKE WINS JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION AWARD

    Our project with chef Tim Byres - SMOKE: New Firewood Cooking (Rizzoli) won the James Beard Foundation Award on Friday in the General Cooking Category. A lot of blood, sweat, and glory went into this book so I’m glad it has received some recognition.
